Emi­rates ex­tends paid-for seat se­lec­tion

Business Traveller - - UPFRONT -

EMI­RATES HAS AMENDED ITS ad­vance seat se­lec­tion pol­icy, with econ­omy class pas­sen­gers fac­ing charges of up to US$135 per flight to se­lect the best seats.

The car­rier orig­i­nally launched se­lec­tion fees last year for econ­omy fly­ers trav­el­ling on Spe­cial and Saver fares. Reg­u­lar seats now cost US$15-$35, while new “Ex­tra Value” seats cost the fol­low­ing:

• Pre­ferred seat (closer to the front of the plane): US$25-US$80

• Twin seat (a row of two seats at the back of the B777 or the front of the A380 up­per deck, usu­ally closer to the wash­rooms): US$35-US$110

• Ex­tra-legroom seat (avail­able up to to six hours be­fore de­par­ture):

US$55-US$135. Econ­omy pas­sen­gers on Spe­cial or Saver fares must pay for all ad­vance seat se­lec­tion, while those on Flex or Flex Plus fares must pay for Ex­tra Value seats. Busi­ness and first class pas­sen­gers can se­lect for free. A range of free and paid-for seat se­lec­tion ben­e­fits ap­ply for Emi­rates Sky­wards and Qan­tas Fre­quent Flyer mem­bers de­pend­ing on tier. All pas­sen­gers may se­lect for free from 48 hours be­fore de­par­ture. emi­rates.com
